Ingredients

  • 1 cup - grated coconut, fresh/frozen.
  • 1/4 cup - desiccated coconut/copra/kobbari.
  • 1/4 cup - milk.

  • How to Make Poppy Seeds Payasam:

    3. Add grated coconut, desiccated coconut, some water and grind to a smooth paste.
    4. Add half a cup of water and strain the paste through a finely perforated strainer. (retain the liquid, as this will make the payasam later).
    5. Transfer the coarse residue into a blender.
    6. Add some water and grind again to a smooth paste.
    7. Repeat steps 4 and 5 about 3-4 times.
    8. Add jaggery to the strained liquid and boil on low-medium heat until all the jaggery dissolves. Remove from stove.

    10. Add powdered elaichi, warm milk with saffron and mix well.
